I always felt she was trying to tell him that she loved him.
that cyclic reading has echoes of turning wheels of train
thank you Carolyn. great association.
These poems are searing, and extraordinary
The "coat of many colors" translation comes from the Septuagint.
Pagis: circular thinking allowed by poem is all that remains in Eve’s tortured mind.
some people need to mute.
thank you for this discussion, very interesting and meaningful for today. 👋
I remember that fantasy so well - my father’s parents would come back and my father would be well. It even became a serious stake game: if I stepped on the black square before the bell rang, they would come back…
I’m friendly with a Bakunin family in the north!
I grew up in Montreal. When I was dating, my mother would always ask, ‘anyer fun inzereh’ (one of ours)? By which she did not mean Ashkenazi, but specifically someone whose parents were Shoah survivors.
there is no doubt that the survivors were very affected and had a negative connect to medical facilities we always needed to be understanding of that
please turn off your mics
Nes gadol ha-yah poh ... vs sham
The Zionism 3.0 Conference in Palo Alto a few years ago created dreidels with an added side --so it had both poh and sham-- a symbolic way to bring Israel and Diaspora together
I love that dreidel.
I used to describe my Dad, a concentration camp survivor, as someone who railed against the God he no longer believed in
Rachel — it was the same in Canada. This was my childhood.

I have never had such a perspective on the period of the Shoah as this. I was born in American, the daughter of immigrants who left Europe in the 1920’s. My island of non-understanding has changed. Thank you.
I cannot remember not knowing about the Shoah - from memories that go back to the age of 3 years!
